I took my 3 kids out with Captain Carter. We had a wonderful time. He helped my 8 year old and was patient with him. He doesn’t stick around in a spot if your not getting bites. We caught lots of fish. He made sure we got to have a good experience. You can definately tell he loves what he does. We will remember our trip forever.

Had a great day on the water with Captain Carter. He is very knowledgeable, and personable. Just a really nice person in general. We highly recommend Flats Fishing Guide. We caughtt lemon shark, spotted trout, mangrove snapper, gag grouper, Crevalle jack, Snook, catfish, lady fish and use it for bait for shark bait. Great day fishing.
